Our local company, Veritas Meeting Solutions, wanted to supply breakfast for the ER staff at Sherman Hospital. George, the owner of Big Skillet, could not have been nicer and more accommodating. He was happy to not only supply what worked for them but he covered any extra cost to make it work and delivered it himself extra early so ... read more

Delicious and great customer service! Called our order in for pick up. Due to the shelter in place, they were closing at 7pm. My husband volume get there until a little after that....they still took our order and said they’d wait for him. Food was very good, Tzatziki was phenomenal!!!

With all the craziness out there right now we really wanted BBQ Ribs tonight and the Big Skillet Restaurant definitely came through for us tonight. We ordered full slabs and it was definitely enough for tonight and tomorrow. Ordering and curbside pickup was very easy. Thanks for a great meal.

Food was great. I would have given 5 stars but our waitress was very impatient with us. She didn't allow anyone to finish what they were saying. She would walk away mid sentence. Very unprofessional.

The Big Skillet has really good home cooked dishes. I tried the fried chicken and it was served piping hot and was very good. Be sure to save room for dessert, especially the pie.

Had a good meal here. It is a solid diner. It's the kind of place that you know what you are "in for" driving up. A solid meal.

We get the fried zucchini with garlic dipping sauce. It always comes out so hot that we have to let it sit for about 10 minutes before it is cool enough to eat. The service at this place is miles better than the nightmare I've dealt with a while back from the extremely rude girl that works at the Bolingbrook location. She was super r ... read more

The menu is more diverse than just Italian. There are big, beefy burgers, and a few breakfast items. The tortilla soup is basically a bowl of broth with ground beef in it. But, the real strength is the Italian part of the menu.chicken Caesar salad had the same delicious chicken on it, but needed more Parmesan cheese. The dressing was ... read more

Their biscuits and gravy are fantastic! I could tell that the biscuits were flaky and flavorful enough to stand on their own so brought some home. Sure enough were tasty plain as well. Also, their bacon is the best I've had in quite awhile. Service prompt and friendly.

What a delicious surprise this place was!!!! We braved the snow to experience their Friday All You Can Eat Walleye . My man ate a total of 8 pieces, I enjoyed a very tasty Julienne salad. Our server Dennis was extremely friendly and helpful. He was always quick to notice when more fish might be needed. Great family restaurant!
